The Incorporated States of NSC Puppet 4 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.851 billion NSC Puppet 4ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse NSC Puppet 4ian economy, worth 157 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,051 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NSC Puppet 4's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NSC Puppet 4 is ranked 18,571st in the world and 49th in Second Best Card Farm for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,360.24 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
